East Pasco Habitat for Humanity recently announced that Lowe's awarded the East Pasco affiliate $20,000 as a result of a grant application filed with Lowe's during the construction of the "Women Build" home.
Lowe's is a national partner for Habitat's Women Build Program and supports the mission of Habitat to provide decent homes for low-income families. More than 800 Women Build homes have been built in the United States and the recent local one was the second for East Pasco.
Although the money comes from Lowe's nationally, the local Zephyrhills store worked closely with the build by holding workshops to train women in building techniques; employees worked and supervised at the jobsites; donations from local fundraisers were held by employees; and, donations came from the Zephyrhills store through their "Local Heroes" program. The grant would not have been possible without the help of the local Lowe's store and general manager Teri Sperry-Connelly.
Spring is just around the corner and that means that the GFWC Lutz Land O'Lakes Woman's Club will be accepting items for their big annual Flea Market Sale beginning March 7 and ending March 13 at the Old Lutz School, U.S. Highway 41 in Lutz.
Members of the Woman's Club will be accepting items at 10 a.m. each Monday and Wednesday. Items must be clean and in working order. Televisions, computers and printers will not be accepted at any time. Due to limited storage, large furniture items cannot be accepted until March 7.
Anyone having children's books no longer being used is encouraged to donate them to the Woman's Club for a project.
